I have an acer aspire 5100 I want to use a USB 1 terabyte


Assuming it's xp or newer,it should just work. Now if this is an older version of windows,like '98,there's a limit on how big a drive can be. You may need to format & partition the drive using 3rd party software that should've comw with the drive.

Acer Aspire 5100 ; mouse freezes right after boot up


hi, yes it is a motherboard issue-i have 2 of those with same problem. new boards for that model are costly. however i found a work around-get a usb pcmcia card put it in the slot on the side-then plug your mouse or other usb devices and you should be ok! I did this a year ago and it runs like new! way cheaper than getting a new one. this is a big problem with these 5100 models. acer no help-other than selling you a new mainboard. this is the best way 2 make it work again. the pcmcia cards are cheap enough. and after that you can get a usb hub if you need more ports. good luck! and please rate this solution. and make sure 2 turn on the cardbus if not on allready. (in epower manager) this will work! reply if you need help! be well!

Touchpad on acer aspire 5100 series is locked


plug in a usb mouse, go to control panel>system>harware>device manager and click on the + sign next to pointing devices. Right click the touchpad and click on uninstall. Reboot the laptop and unplug the usb mouse. This should pick up the touchpad as new hardware and reinstall it. Hopefully this will resolve the problem.
